    Same @legolover, huge Liverpool fan here. I got the home kit as soon as it came out. Personally, I think the three kits (home, away and third) are lovely so the vapour shirt must be the best kit in the world if its €50 dearer. Hope though there will be more trophies won in the new kit. Cheers to many great years ahead.

    I loved that article. It shows how climate change affects the Arctic and Antarctica aswell as the animals that live there such as: Polar Bears, Seals and Penguins. I know that nearly everone knows about climate change but there is no point knowing about it and not doing anything to help the animals or the people of the world. There are many easy ways to help the environment, but no one is doing them. 🌎🌎😞😞😞😞

    I think it's very good to help the bats. I enjoy seeing bats in my garden. It's sad that people harm them or believe they get tangled in your hair, since most bats in Ireland are harmless. So I think people should help them out by making bat boxes. It's a lovely thing, but If your afraid of bats its understandable.

    What an amazing article! Those scientists must been brave. How could they stay there for a whole year and also you need food to survive and if they were on a ship would they not run out of food and even if they had packed enough food for a year would it not go bad? I am still shocked about how they survived. I'm also worried about all the ice melting. My family and I always try to do the best we can by not littering and recycling. I hope that we can over come climate change and save the animals and the planet.

    That is really interesting I love Halloween and I enjoyed hearing all about how it originated. I never knew that they used to dress up to blend in if there ever was any monsters. I can't wait for Halloween, since we are not able to trick or treat this year we are going to have a small party just with my parents and my sister. Thank you so much for this article Emily I really enjoyed it and thank you click news πŸ™‚

    It's really good how she is helping those bats. Up in our fields we have bat boxes
    for the bats. She is very kind to be using her spare time to help bats. I say it would
    be hard to catch the bats. Whenever I see them they are jut zooming around the
    place. Very good article CliC New! Thanks!

    This article just shows how we need to act fast. How our world is changing due to climate change, all the CO2 is going up in the air and effecting the ozone, all the plastic going into the oceans and the icecaps melting because the world is getting hotter and hotter. We are the ones that need to act the scientists did their job so now we have to do ours. Excellent article CLiC News, thanks!

    I used to be scared of bats, when I was about four. But now, I think they're adorable! I mean come on! Look at their little faces! Look at the way they sleep! Don't you wish you could be that comfortable hanging from the ceiling? Sorry, I went on a rant.

    The Spanish Flu! Gosh! I wonder if it was like Covid? Only, the flu was a lot more unpredictable than Covid. While Covid tends to strike the elderly or ill, the flu tended to strike more young and strong people. Did she ever fall ill, I wonder? And - she would have been seven, wouldn't she? Would she have sung the little skipping ditty?
    'I had a little bird,
    It's name was Enza,
    I opened the window,
    And in-flu-Enza,'
    Or was that just in England? Sorry - I've read rather a lot about the Spanish Flu.
    It is amazing that she lived through all that! I hope that she will continue to prosper well.

    Oh, that's a shame - but I'm sure you could try! Even if it's not easy. I'm sure that whatever you write will be wonderful! Just try it, and see what happens. I wouldn't be surprised if you won! It doesn't need to be perfect. You could even arm yourself with a dictionary, if you get stuck, and flip through it to find words that match the letter! Just give it a go.

    Oh - and just remember, be sure to put your name, and make the poem 'Days Grow Shorter'

    We are sorry but the full site content is only available to registered CLiCNews users.

    CLiC News is the exciting venture from the Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) Access and Civic Engagement (ACE) Office, that brings you all the latest news stories written and produced especially for primary school pupils.

    Our free news website, CLiC News, was set up in conjunction with the TU Dublin School of Media and  Students Learning with Communities (SLWC) to provide a resource for DEIS schools in Dublin. We have subsequently made the site available to all primary schools but provide added support to local DEIS schools. We have set up a restricted site as we want to produce a safe environment for children which allows them to leave comments without feeling intimidated and ensures that they will only come in contact with their peers or teachers. Within the site, news items are written by Journalist students from the TU Dublin at a level which reflects the age range of the children (4th, 5th and 6th class) and is presented in a way which precludes using graphical images and language which are unsuitable for young children. As an encouragement and aid to improving Reading and Writing skills the children are encouraged to comment on stories which have been published. All the children's comments are pre-moderated and awarded stars based on their grammar and content. We also provide facilities for registered teachers to download the children s comments from their school so that the content can be assessed offline. Within CLiC News, as a parallel to published news items, we run various Polls and Competitions all designed to help improve the level and standards of literacy among the children. For more information on CLiC News and how you may apply to register your class please contact us HERE
    CLiC News is run in conjunction with the Journalism Department of the TU Dublin School of Media.   This is part of an initiative organised through the Access and Civic Engagement  'Students Learning With Communities' (SLWC) programme.
